Yesterday, Tuesday, June 16, in NYC, recently-resigned SPOKANE, WA, NAACP President RACHEL DOLEZAL who has been accused of pretending to be a BLACK WOMAN, was at the NBC studios for an interview with MATT LAUER for the TODAY SHOW!!!
RACHEL DOLEZAL said to MATT LAUER that around age 4 or 5, she began identifying as BLACK.
RACHEL DOLEZAL said;
"I was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon, and black curly hair."She insisted that she has never intentionally deceived anyone.
"I do take exception to that because it's a little more complex than me identifying as black or answering a question of, are you black or white?"But given the fallout she has experienced since the controversy erupted last week, Dolezal said she would make the same choices if she had the chance.
"As much as this discussion has somewhat been at my expense recently, and in a very sort of viciously inhumane way come out of the woodwork, the discussion is really about what it is to be human. I hope that that can drive at the core of definitions of race, ethnicity, culture, self determination, personal agency and, ultimately, empowerment."-CCG
